Miguel Speaks About Bringing The "Rocket" Out Of Beyonce


We don't know about you but Rocket is our favorite song hands down on Beyoncé's self-titled album! From the moment she sings that first line...you know it's about to go down! It's just so sexy, passionate, and powerful! We definitely didn't think Beyoncé had all of that in her...LOL! However, we are learning that it took singer and song writer Miguel to help bring that SASS out of Mrs. Carter!


You better check the credits! Beyoncé enlisted Miguel with the help of Justin Timberlake to write the super sexy song Rocket for her album. She wanted the R&B singer to push himself and take it there with the lyrics, and take it there he did! The first thing he wrote down was the song's opening line, "Let me sit this ass...on you" and the rest is music history! In a recent interview with Vibe Magazine,  Miguel spoke on how he tapped into his own thoughts of Beyoncé to create the lyrics:

“What's the first thing I'd want Beyoncé to say to me, as a man? What have I not heard her say?” Miguel recalls thinking. “That's where the song came from. And essentially it's what all of us would want Beyoncé to say to us—no disrespect, obviously, to Jay. She's confident and [“Rocket”] showcases that part of her that we haven't seen—her confidence and her sexuality—which can be liberating to a certain degree, I hope that's why she loves the record—that's why I love the record.She's a beautiful woman and that's why even women love her... She just rocked everyone's world."

On Beyoncé wanting him to push the envelope:

“I'll never forget the conversation I had with Beyoncé and her insisting that nothing was off-limits. And me being like, 'Oh yeah, you sure? Because I can really take it there.'”


Can you imagine how awkward that must have been for Jay Z? He literally had to listen to another man tell his wife what he would do to her and have her sing it back to him...LOL! We know for sure that he must have stepped out of the room for that one! Matter of fact he might have missed this session all together...LOL!

Side SASS: Beyoncé also discussed her feelings about the song in the fourth installment of  her self-titled documentary! Watch below!
